6 Pond Road

A new home was being built in a private beach community in Old Lyme, Connecticut. A deep foundation was required, but the close proximity to surrounding homes eliminated driven timber piles due to vibration concerns. Helical Piles were the ideal choice for this new project.

Project Summary:

  • Helical Pile Type: 2 7/8″ Pipe w/.203 wall
  • # of Helical Piles: 16
  • Location: Old Lyme, CT
  • Installation Depth: 18′ to 20′
  • Ultimate Pile Capacity: 32 kips
  • Challenge/Unique Aspect: A unique aspect of this project was that all 18 of the helical piles were installed in one day. Timber piles would have taken a minimum of 2-3 days and at a higher cost for mobilization.
